We were looking for a great restaurant to celebrate a special occasion, so we selected Fisherman's Pier. We were not disappointed! Not only did the seafood dishes look mouth-watering when served, the presentation and taste were both perfect!

All four main meals were brought out together and all were extremely enjoyable. Possibly , a little quicker on the drinks supply would be the only thing that could improve. However , a very enjoyable day was held.

Such a beautiful restaurant with incredible food and service. The lighting was a little disappointing as it lacked atmosphere and was a bit too bright & glary for intimate dining. Next time would go for lunch to enjoy the views. Food was delicious!

When we arrived, there was confusion over our table. It had to be cleaned down and reset. We were then seated and forgotten about.

It took at least ten minutes to get someone's attention to take our order. My wine arrived followed by the oysters, which we finished before my daughter's cocktail arrived.

The service was haphazard.

The food was fine.

Beautiful food, excellent service and the staff all spoiled my mum for her 70th birthday. Patrons were seated away from each other which made it easy to have a private quiet lunch.
Excellent dusted squid!

Beautiful location and lovely atmosphere. The entree was amazing and the mains looked great, however, the oven baked salmon was very oily and looked and tasted pan fried. There was chili in the salad underneath, which was not mentioned in the description of the dish. The lobster ravioli was nice, if under seasoned, and there was no salt or pepper on the table.
The staff were very friendly, but not very attentive - they did not refill empty water glasses and left finished plates on the table for a long while. It was a quiet evening and there were sufficient staff.

Place looked beautiful with a nice view of the port. Food was delicious. Flash fried barramundi, pappardelle pasta and ravioli with fish and chips. Everything was beautiful and would love to come back again. Was just a bit disappointed we could not experience their lunch menu.

I am used to a more extensive dessert menu and more creative. What is online does not match what is available eg Duck breast.
My meal was supposed to have an Asian salad. The salad was so minute I ordered a side garden salad.

Service was slow to start. Waitress was inexperienced in opening wine bottle with a corkscrew. Interesting to watch. We ordered the seafood platter which was substantial but very expensive. The crab in the cold course was empty of any meat and unpleasant tasting. We were offered a lame excuse, an apology and the opportunity to have extra food! A small discount should have been the result but not offered. The hot platter quickly got cool so maybe should have been served in stages? The wine is expensive and we thought a bit limited. Nice position on the waterfront. There was a noisy group at the other end of the restaurant that reduced the intimacy of the setting. We think that it would have been better to have ordered individual items rather than the platter. Overall the evening was OK but not as special as we would have hoped for a wedding anniversary. (We noted that it was our anniversary on the booking but not acknowledged when we were there as other venues have).

Most of the staff (4) seemed very inexperienced, (like it was their first night) they lacked professionalism. They didn’t even make sure we did the QR code. So we didn’t because we were not instructed otherwise.
Very lapse....
When we were ready to go to the register and pay, we walked passed the bar where 3 staff waiters were attending to their mobiles. We then stood for quite some time before someone noticed us standing at the register to pay. How they could not have noticed 3 people walking passed the bar is beyond me. We all discussed how unprofessional that was when we left.

Flavours and textures were amazing, I would have preferred the seafood chowder to be served in a bowl rather than a cobb loaf so not too much soup soaked into the bread (it was just so lovely on its own). We didn’t get the second glass of wine we ordered, but the overall service was very good. We will definitely come again.

I’ve been going to fisherman’s pier for many years travelling from Melbourne. Unfortunately it’s not the same, menu is very limited, service was not the same. My husband and I were celebrating 35 years anniversary and we were a bit disappointed. Not sure if I would come back after 20 years coming and enjoying the food, service and atmosphere.

The food and staff were great. Unfortunately we were near the door so got a bit of traffic. This is to be expected. A bit disappointed seeing people in ripped shorts and thongs, especially on a Saturday evening. Maybe some different oyster species would be nice on the menu?
But overall very good. Will definitely go back
